BG Group chief executive resigns

BG Group’s board has accepted Chris Finlayson’s resignation as chief executive and executive director, effectively immediately. Andrew Gould, BG nonexecutive chairman, will take over as interim executive chairman until a permanent replacement is appointed, the company said.

A recruitment process to find an external successor to Finlayson is under way. Gould will return to his role as nonexecutive chairman once the company finds a new chief executive.

The company has withdrawn the resolution to reelect Finlayson as a director at this year’s annual general meeting.
